This morning, in my eager anticipation of the workout, I accidentally downed a little too much coffee. Fifteen seconds into jumping rope, the waves of stomach-turning nausea washed through me. Bleech. Seriously, I consider this a critical question: How does one maximize caffeine intake as soon as possible while steering clear of the early morning, coffee-induced, work-out-exacerbated nausea? The easy answer – get off the drug - is clearly an unacceptable one.
Today was great. Weighted Tabata squats (totally weird, but maybe you eventually get used to hugging a freezing cold 35-lb weight to your chest) and lots of sit-ups. Way to go Julie, who may or may not have kicked ass doing somewhere between 40 and 190 sit-ups in 10 minutes.
